Needle For Product Engine Help

Post  NEW222 on Tue Dec 22, 2015 5:33 pm

Hi there. I have just come into what I believe is another product engine with a black horseshoe backplate. The only problem is that there was no needle included with it. So, which needle would I need for it? These two look the same except for length. The difference is $1 in price. Thank you.

Which needle? How close to the prop do you want your fingers or knuckle??  Longer needles give you a little extra to grip, but may also vibrate loose, so I have read. I think as long as both needles have the same "threads per inch" either will work.

You can also use the "Killer Bee" needle. They all have the same thread, but the KB needle has a plastic extention to reduce vibration, but cost + $2.
   Use the long one. Some one sells them on ebay for less than $1 each when you buy 10 pieces.
